I'm excited to share that the Black Rose Theatre in Brandon is performing my one-act play, The Kindness of Strangers, July 12-15 during a night of one acts.
The play is a kind of love letter to Streetcar Named Desire and New Orleans - two of my favorite things!
My son was in Black Rose's production of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown at the beginning of the year. I spent a lot of time in the theatre. Sitting. Waiting. Sitting and waiting. And pacing.
At the end, I decided to use the time to write myself instead of just sitting there. I wrote the play in a week while sitting in the back row of the same theatre it will be performed. (Because I found out about the one-act play competion the week before.) It was a very rough draft.
I'm very excited but scared to death. Auditions for the one acts are June 18th and 19th... so if you've been wanting to try out for a play, come on out and be scared WITH me! ;)
The play is attached below. I have to come up with a set that can be moved easily too. If anyone has any ideas of how to create a bar scene inexpensively that can be moved quickly and easily, let me know!
